About the research
The accelerated deterioration of steel and concrete bridges has caused significant problems in the management and maintenance of the highway infrastructure. To date there have been relatively few in-service vehicular bridges constructed and monitored. While the potential exists for durable bridges to be built from FRP, their performance can only be evaluated through a series of monitoring programs. This proposal to the City of Bettendorf is to allow the transfer of the monitoring/evaluation portion of the IBRC Program funding to Iowa State University to perform these tasks.
